Really great place to stay on overlooking the river. Make sure you ask for a room right on the river bank, one of about 6 which are directly on the river. You will be treated to a lovely view of the river every time you look out your windows. Also each room has a wood burner and wood provided with firelighters in case you're weren't a scout! Look in all the cupboards as there are tea/coffee facilities, fans and heaters all hidden away, in case you want them.

The value is great, a very modest price for a great location.

The food is OK, although not spectacular, although again not at all expensive.

The hotel makes a good base for driving the Long Tom Pass and the Panoramic Route nearby, there are numerous great driving roads. In fact we met a crew from Mercedes Germany doing high speed testing in various hugely powerful cars!

Overall a very good deal!

We had read good reviews about this lodge, but unfortunately we did not have a good experience. We arrived at approx. 4:00 p.m. after travelling from 5:00 in the morning. My husband was ill and just needed to get some food and lie in bed. The restaurant at the lodge was closed so we went into town to get some food at the super market. By the time we returned at 5:00 the guard at the gate informed us that the reception was closed. The front desk staff failed to tell us that we had to pre-book breakfast, so by the time we read this in our room after 5pm, there was no one at the front desk to inform of our wish to have breakfast. 
We were in the ground floor room of 4-plex lodge and there was a family with small children above us. There was absolutely no insulation between the rooms and we heard every extremely loud creak in the floor, their voices and arguments and this went on for 5 hours before they went to bed. It was unbelievably loud. They awoke before 6 am and consequently so did we. We also heard the conversations of the people in the room adjacent to us on the ground floor.
The bed sheets were dirty and the wood for the fire would not light in the fireplace (we tried three times using all of the fuel provided).
We slept poorly, had no breakfast and left early the next morning due to the circumstances. I did relay all of this to the front desk staff, who subsequently said, that she had accommodation on the grounds and she could have been contacted. This had not been relayed to us by the guard.
We were very disappointed by our experience.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the 4-plex lodges, especially on the ground floor

My siblings and I couldn't have chosen a better getaway to shake off the festivities in preparations for the rest of 2014. Management was pleasant & very helpful. The staff was so "fairy" like in that you never saw them dusting the room up, nor did they continuously knock on the door while we were there as per usual with other establishments - but like magic, our rooms were always spick & span upon our return.

It was just what my siblings and I were looking for. A quiet but very alive town with activities a short distance away - really, what more could one ask for?? Oh... Maybe log cabins... They are such an absolute beauty. Although I didn't sleep at the "hotel" part of the establishment, I can safely say, the log cabins were the best.

Yes, I could go on and on about how perfect Lone Creek River Lodge was... But I urge you to rather go and check it out yourself.

One word of caution, mosquitoes! Goodness me! They were in their numbers. But in their defense, the entire town has an abundance of mosquitoes.

I would do this lodge again in a heartbeat!

Lone Creek River Lodge is a great place to stay with family. The lodge is superbly maintained and very child friendly. Our chalet overlooked the pool in the well kept grounds. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The top rooms have a loft which is fun for the kiddies but not so fun when you have to climb the steep ladder to put sleeping kids to bed.

We decided to have christmas lunch at Lone Creek as we have had pleasant experiences there before. All I can say is "wow". Well done to the management and staff of the Lodge. The table settings were beautiful and the food was out of this world.
